WHITE HALL, W.Va. — A man has been charged after officers found narcotics during a traffic stop in White Hall.
On Sept. 1, officers with the White Hall Police Department performed a traffic stop on a vehicle at the intersection of U.S. Rt. 73 and Middletown Road in White Hall for not having a registration light, according to a criminal complaint.
When officers made contact with the vehicle’s driver, identified as Brandon Cottrell, 20, of Fairmont, they walked a K9 unit around to perform a free air sniff which resulted in a positive indication, officers said.
